About this blog

In this blog I will share some information about creating "custom" Widgets.

What will be in this blog:

  • How to inherit from Widget or other predefined Widgets
  • How is the Widget-Class build up
  • A way to distribute your own Widgets to the community
  • A basic framework for advanced Widgets
  • hints for writing Widgets

At the end of this blog I want to show a rewrite of Joshs https://www.ultraengine.com/learn/CPP/AdvancedInterface with the use of custom widgets to automatically control the layout and maybe have a fully working  Lightweight TextEditor ready.

 

As a teaser what can be done (yes this is a fully working ScintillaWidget):
